For today's lesson, we are looking at the difference between phrases and sentences.
A sentence is a group of words that makes sense on its own. Every sentence must contain a verb. Look at these examples.
Mr Massey refereed the football match between Brooklands and Andrews Memorial.
Jackie looked everywhere for Mr Skip's missing hat.
A phrase is a group of words which forms part of a sentence. Phrases are usually quite short. They do not make sense on their own and many phrases do not contain a verb. Look at these examples.

Dance Mat Typing!
Are you good at typing? Can you find your way around the keyboard quickly? Dance Mat Typing is a great way to learn the layout of the letters on your keyboard and, as you become better at typing, you'll soon find that you can type a message more quickly than you can write it with a pen or pencil.
Being able to touch type (without looking at your hands as you type) is a great skill and one that will prove to be very useful as you get older and move to your next school.
Head to the BBC Bitesize website and type along with the music and songs as you become a keyboard whizz! Dance Mat Typing - BBC Bitesize
